Secondary double glazing
Adding secondary glazing is a brilliant idea if you’re looking to reduce noise, keep out unwanted draughts and improve the energy efficiency of your building.
What is secondary double glazing?
Secondary double glazing effectively means adding another window inside your existing windows. The secondary window sits within its own frame that is fixed to the existing window. Because it’s considered a non-permanent, removable addition, secondary double glazing is perfect for listed buildings or when you cannot remove existing windows for conservation reasons. In fact, secondary glazing is even recommend by English Heritage for use in historic buildings. Secondary double glazing is also an affordable alternative to fitting new double glazing windows throughout an entire property, or for use in particular trouble spots in a building. Plus, it’s not just for character buildings—secondary double glazing is frequently used in new buildings that are located in particularly noisy or cold areas.
